An Honest Muslim vs. a Crafty Jew

In the "Voices of Faith" section of the KC Star, there appeared a simple question, "Abraham had two sons. Then what happened?"

The question was posed to a Muslim professor and a Jew Rabbi.

The Muslim answered the question in a straight forward, honest and detailed way, giving praise to his God and the prophets. Then the Jew answered. First, the column from the Muslim:
Mohamed Kohia, Rockhurst University professor:

In Islam, Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) is labeled as the father of prophets. Among his children was the first born Ishmael (Ismael) and second born Isaac (Ishac). From the offspring of Ismael came only one prophet "Mohammad," and from the progeny of Ishac came many prophets, including Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus and others (peace be upon them all).

Ismael is recognized by Muslims as an important prophet, patriarch, and the ancestor of several prominent Arab tribes. Mohammad was the descendant of Ismael that would establish a great nation, as promised by God in the Old Testament:

"And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of 12 rulers, and I will make them into a great nation." (Genesis 17:20)

Ismael, being the first born of Abraham (about 13 years before Isaac), is believed by Muslims to be the one offered for sacrifice by Abraham in an amazing obedience of God, and he was saved by God's mercy.

In conclusion, the following must be noticed:

_Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son to please God.

_Ismael makes sure in different ways that neither he nor his father hesitated in their obedience to God. In this way, Ismael is a model of surrendering one's will to God, an essential characteristic in Islam.

_In Islam, all prophets are equally respected and treated as special human beings, chosen by God to deliver his message: "We make no distinction between prophets" (Q: 2:285)

_The story of the birth of Ismael is not considered particularly important in Islam, but rather, the meaning of the story, and is mostly mentioned as part of the narrative of Abraham.
Now read the Jew's reply. Notice how he evades the question by dissembling, making smart-ass remarks and putting Jews above their God, or should I say 'G-d?'
Rabbi Avi Weinstein, Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy:

A great Jewish philosopher, when asked about the essential difference between Judaism and Christianity, quipped: The central theme of Christianity is that God offered his only son for the salvation of man. For Judaism it is that a man offered his only son to God.

In other words, just as the crucifixion of Jesus is the core belief of Christianity, what captures the Jewish imagination is Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son, Isaac, to God.

It was a test of faith that has caused many to wonder what was the purpose of the test.

Child sacrifice was not unheard of in Biblical times, but for Abraham, the sole master of the Covenant, it was soon to be out of bounds. Abraham makes no assumptions that his moral instincts are greater than his Creator, and God, after testing Abraham, affirms the moral instincts of Abraham.

It is noted that immediately following this episode, Sarah, Abraham's wife, dies. The early commentators do not see this as incidental, but Sarah is the collateral damage of Abraham's test.

The Midrash says that Satan visits her in a dream telling her that her husband has gone to sacrifice Isaac. She lets out three wailing cries and dies before they have a chance to return. Sarah is collateral damage.

Those cries are emulated by the sound of the ram's horn, the shofar, on Rosh Hashanah. Every Rosh Hashanah, Jews blow the shofar to remind God, that, yes, we have sinned, and yes, we are guilty, but not even the God is blame-free, so we supplicate, but with a subtle defiance.

Even the ram that was sacrificed in Isaac's stead is also part of this story and the complex relationship between a human and his deity in a very un-perfect world.
Just another day in the 'Jewniverse,' where the crafty Jew wallows in his pride, putting himself about all others, demeaning their religion, while pious Muslims seek to honor their God.

Another Muslim friend of us GOY!

UPDATE: Speaking of crafty Jews, since there's another one of those holohoax celebration days or some kind of holocau$t asinine twaddle this week, you can go to the United Nation's "Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Program" here and find at least 20 pages with endless links to holocau$t BS.

Outreach? More like reaching into your wallet and picking it clean to support the welfare moochers of the 'Tribe' who demand the world pay them a living for doing nothing the last 70 years, except to piss and moan, crying out loudly that they are the ONLY victims of another World War fought to help establish 'Stolenland' on the backs and graves of the indigenous Palestinians.

It's amazing how they make all their statements about almost anything sound so inclusive of everyone. Until you notice that inclusivity pertains only to them. Damn the rest of us.

And a Muslim woman fighting the evil Nazis, escaping from Dachau twice? Boy, what a story, she must be a HC survivor. Maybe a relative of Anne Frank?

Yeah, but that Muslim lady didn't make it back home, think the movie might be worth watching, but it won't be on Ziovision.

Those damned concentration camps must of had holes in the barb wire big enough to drive a truck thru, if one was to believe all the holocau$t con artists who 'escaped' from their operas, swimming pools, steady work that paid decent and protection from the bombing by that psycho Churchill.
